Welcome to the website of Church of the Palms, a part of the United Methodist Church, where we believe a life connected to God, and a life connected to one another, is the most meaningful life there is!
A great turnout of some super "worker bees" made for a very successful and productive Summer Workday. Thanks everyone!
Pastor Pete will be at the Candler School of Theology in Atlanta July 28 - August 8 for two weeks of classes.
He will be taking a required course on UMC Doctrine and a second course on the Theology of Suffering.
This is part of the requirements he is fulfilling to be ordained in the UMC, an event that is currently anticipated to occur in 2020.
Please keep him in your prayers during this time.
The Brothers!, who gather for breakfast and study on Thursday morning continue their study of Daniel at 4:19 when they next meet on July 31 at 8 a.m.
The Book of Daniel is one of the books of scripture that takes place during a period of judgment. Against a backdrop of paganism represented by the culture's idol worship and Nebuchadnezzar's arrogance, the faithful purity of Daniel allows the power of the God to be seen in magnificent and wondrous ways.
This book makes it clear that the true God is the supreme ruler over heaven and earth, even when all the evidence says otherwise.
Some of us are still singing the songs, dancing the dances, and giving thanks for the blessings of our week of Wilderness Escape Vacation Bible School.
Take a moment and give yourself a gift by viewing some of the memorable scenes of fun, fellowship, and learning that earmarked this year's VBS.
Brothers Too!, an early Saturday morning breakfast and Bible study with Pastor Pete, continues August 2, at 7:30 a.m. at the church building.
